Top Ten Best Things About September

September sometimes gets a bad rap, which I feel is undeserved. In fact, I think it's my favourite month of the year.

The Top Ten Best Things About September

1 The Weather

This past winter brought a new dawn to my way of reacting to weather changes. I have come to love and anticipate each season since I find refreshment from each major climate-related change. I love Autumn for the cooler breezes, the refreshing scents of nature, the colour changes, the seasonal activities, etc... - BKAllmighty

I prefer summer weather.

We are used to cooler weather in the Midwest United States. The temperatures are used in the 80s or 90s In the Summer in Omaha. I'm always like "I can't wait till fall". And now it's here! We are now going to have weather in the 60s and 70s! Time to celebrate cooler weather. - EpicJake

It's still warm enough to enjoy without freezing, but not unbearably hot and humid, and there's a delightful crispness in the air. September is the only month in which you can enjoy both summer and fall. - PetSounds

2 Fall Colours

In Australia September is the beginning of Spring.

The leaves start to turn yellow, orange, and red, but they stay on the trees. You can enjoy the colours without having to rake them up! - PetSounds

Well technically where I live September is Spring because Australia is at the south. - AlphaQ

3 School

I love school. It's definitely a privilege, especially to go to a school like the one I am. Not only do I feel super motivated and ready to get straight A's, but I get new friends and new goals. It just feels great to be so motivated. - keycha1n

Reconnecting with old friends and making new ones is exciting. Plus, you'll be learning a bunch of new information. - PetSounds

New useless information. Well, just the math. But anyway, even if I don't like school, we need it. So children, don't drop out once you can. - Therandom

In Indianapolis where I live, most school districts there start in early to mid-August. But one of them start in late July! - creed99

Yes... Totally agree. I have exams in september and I top in the class. And guess... Today is 5 september time for my 4th exam!

4 Sports

I love the start of the football season. But school sucks!

In baseball, it's the final month of the season, and teams are jockeying for playoff positions. Football gets underway, and hockey is about to do the same. - PetSounds

And tell those Blue Jays to start using their hockey sticks please 😉 - Billyv

Hockey doesn't come back until October, but it being only one month away is better than it being five months away. - BKAllmighty

5 Sleeping

But you can sleep in the summer too - Ihateschool

Cooler evenings agree with me considerably when it comes to getting a good nights sleep. No more sweaty mornings. - BKAllmighty

Thank goodness, because sleeping is sort of like a hobby of mine.

Temperatures are lower and nighttime is longer, so sleeping is easier. - PetSounds

6 Shopping

Most stores have all kinds of discounts and sales on. Plus, Halloween stuff hits the shelves. My favourite record store currently has a 2-for-1 deal going. - PetSounds

Yeah, it's the Halloween stuff that gets me excited, all right. I love Halloween. - BKAllmighty

7 New iPhone

I never have an iPhone. Not really a fan of apple myself anyway. Oh well ;-; - MLPFan

I got a new Android in September - Ihateschool

8 New Releases

I tend to check for new releases around July, but really it can be any time of year. Mind you, Armin's sixth album is in October, and I'm looking forward to that. - PositronWildhawk

All the best summer movies start making their way onto the shelves. I stopped asking for movies for Christmas ages ago since I can never help myself from buying them. - BKAllmighty

A lot of musicians and authors choose to release their new works in September. You might find the soundtrack and plot of the rest of your year. - PetSounds

9 Birthdays

People born in this month are very lucky.

Mine is the 18th!

My house has six family members (the dog counts) and two of them have a birthday in September. - Therandom

! My birthday was yesterday! - MLPFan

10 You Can Sing "Wake Me Up When September Ends"

I was waiting for this. I'm not disappointed. - Merilille

September sucks but the song is good

Then peoceed to fall asleep for the rest of the month. - Turkeyasylum

The Contenders

11 Weekends

Better in the summer - Ihateschool

Summer is great, but the novelty of staying in bed until noon wears off when you can do it every day. Nobody expects you to do anything on weekends, except homework. Oh, wait... - PetSounds

Every month has those though.

12 Hiking

I love hiking at this time of year. The air is cool, the mosquitos are mostly gone, and since animals are preparing for winter and have less ground cover, you tend to spot more wildlife. - PetSounds

13 Structure

Everyone's getting back to routines and schedules because of work, school, and other activities. I personally try to keep my mind occupied with some structure, so I love this "settling in" period. - PetSounds

Since university starts in October in my country, I'm spending this September planning ahead. Too bad I currently have more of a structure than the college does. - PositronWildhawk

With all the students making a mess of their practicals, Billy, that might slowly be happening. - PositronWildhawk
